    I would love to try and get hold of one of the older drugs but the doc I'm seeing won't prescribe them. He will, however, give out free samples and a discount on the new, "fun" stuff like Cymbalta. I may be looking for a new doctor.

    (((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))) And good luck with your job interview. I cried at mine and still got the job! And have gone on to great success in spite of the damage inflicted by my previous psycho boss. Here's hoping you can find a mensch like my current boss who will see your potential and give you a shot.

    ((((LIB)))), I'm thinking and praying for you today. You are strong, even though you may not think so right now. You can get through this!

    Thank you. I'm doing a bit better now. Started taking Lexapro again, rather than these newer drugs, which can have terrible withdrawal symptoms; indeed, there is a withdrawal "syndrome" and I believe that is part of what's been happening to me.

    I was just rereading this thread and thought I'd update it.

    I'm still taking a half-dose of Lexapro and it is keeping me sane. If I have to stay on it the rest of my life, I will.

    I'm afraid to say anything further about family relationships because I don't want any more problems in that area. Let me just say this: If I can't talk about my relationships with people online, or even my friends because the family member will be angry with me, where am I supposed to get support? A professional, only?

    LIB,

    Glad the medication is working for you. You should definitely stay on it if it is helping you. Regarding your family issues, I don't have an answer for you but it seems to me that someone whose behavior is causing you pain and who will not allow you to use whatever resources you need to cope with that does not have your best interests at heart. YOu shouldn't just have to stuff your feelings and deal with whatever they are doing on your own, especially considering all the other stresses you are under. It is fine and healthy for you to stand up for yourself and what you need. You don't have to tear the other person down to do that, just state your needs and attend to them. I know, easier said than done. But I hope you can find the strength/resolve to put yourself first. Sometimes that means you need to draw some boundaries and put some distance between you and the person causing the pain. That is hard, but also healthy. And you deserve health and happiness. I hope you can find it. We're all pulling for you. Come back for support often, even if you don't feel you can/should share the details.

    Lhamo, thank you for your kind words. I have trouble with boundaries. I also have trouble in making a statement and then sticking to it. I'll keep trying.
